In a time when we do not have an opportunity to grow outside or own a land, gardening becomes the new type of labour and pleasure. It indicates creating many different platforms to share the knowledge and exchange own products. Somehow it becomes a new powerful social infrastructure. As architects, how could we implement domesticity of plants which is limited to our shared subletting flats for working and living? Can a curtain simulate that pleasure?
Do you hear?
The curtain whispers.
I hear the chirping of birds outside.
They must have come to drink from the leaves.
The roots of the plants spread faster in water.
They are looking for their paths,
expanding their connections,
merging with other species.
Gardening is a way for me to care.
To heal what is broken.
